A secure private folder for APPS?

Have been searching on secure folder apps but all I seem to find is apps for hiding dirty pics :)

What I am looking for is an app to password protect one or more of the folders in which I store apps so that people cannot get at the apps to use them.

Is there such a thing?

Thanks

Yes, there is such a thing. However, not for stock iPads. You have to be jail broken and then you can get a tweak to lock either your apps, your folders or both.

But, you won't find anything like that in the App Store. Only the photo protection ones, as you've discovered.

Thanks Marilyn
I thought as much - effectively sets up user control like on a PC so far too useful to be allowed by Apple!
Very new to this so will stick to learning the basics before jail breaking!

I know Apps that are great for hiding files, but not for hiding apps
